Equity Fund

All government schools have established an Equity Fund to ensure access and equity in the provision of education. The fund supports the needs of students who might not otherwise be in a position to take advantage of the opportunities provided by their schools.


Excursions

Excursions are an integral part of the education program at Chapman Primary School. Through excursions, students benefit from enriching experiences which enhance their educational program by giving them direct access to skills, knowledge and understanding they need to relate to their social and environmental surroundings. Experiential learning of this type is invaluable for integrating the education experience within the wider community. School uniform must be worn when students attend these activities.

A bus levy is sought from parents at the beginning of the school year to cover the transportation costs of excursions. Excursions may also incur other costs which may or may not be included in the program requirement costs to be paid each year.

Excursion Medical Permission

It is the responsibility of the parent to notify the school of any medical issues and/or medications that their child is taking. All students attending an excursion must have a current Excursion Medical Permission form completed. All parents are requested to complete an Excursion Medical Permission form at the beginning of the year. If the information that you provided on your child's form has changed since completing the form at the beginning of the year (eg medications) please complete a new form for your child prior to the excursion.

The Excursion Medical form is available from the front office or Excursion Medical Permission Form.
